Synesthesia the Musical, an acoustic solo show written and performed by Jillian Vitko, and directed by me, will premiere at Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August before its US premiere at New York Theatre Festival in September.
Synesthesia is a rare condition where one's senses are blended. Some people associate colors with the alphabet, or shapes with sound; Jillian associates colors with people. Told through the lens of synesthesia, the show has the feel of an intimate concert. Jillian weaves her funny, tragic, and heartfelt story around six of her original songs on the guitar.
Synesthesia the Musical will run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival - August 15-25 at 4:45pm at the Golf Tavern (30-31 Wright's Houses, Edinburgh EH10 4HR, UK) and at the New York Theatre Festival on September 5-8 (9/5 @ 9pm, 9/7 @ 1:30pm, 9/8 @ 6:30pm) at Hudson Guild Theater (441 W 26th St, New York, NY 10001).
